The residence is steeped in history with rumours that Oliver Cromwell convalesced here from his battle on Marston Moor, the estate originally belonged to the Nostell Priory Estate, the Gargreave family in the 15th Century and the seat of the Monkton family in the 17th Century. Only upon inspection will the true scale and grandeur of the property be felt. The current vendors have renovated part of the house and have lived in this area, the house offers further scope and potential due to its layout and size and in addition there are numerous outbuildings and a Cottage ripe for renovation. Buyers may take a view that this is to be returned back to a family home or alternatively consider separating areas within the building for additional accommodation, as with all listed buildings this is subject to numerous consents and permissions. The property sits in around 3 acres of land so ideal for anyone with equestrian or small holding interests.

An indication of the seller’s current minimum acceptable price at auction. The guide price or range of guide prices is given to assist consumers in deciding whether or not to pursue a purchase. It is usual, but not always the case, that a provisional reserve range is agreed between the seller and the auctioneer at the start of marketing. As the reserve is not fixed at this stage and can be adjusted by the seller at any time up to the day of the auction in the light of interest shown during the marketing period, a guide price is issued. This guide price can be shown in the form of a minimum and maximum price range within which an acceptable sale price (reserve) would fall, or as a single price figure within 10% of which the minimum acceptable price (reserve) would fall. A guide price is different to a reserve price (see separate definition). Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
The seller’s minimum acceptable price at auction and the figure below which the auctioneer cannot sell. The reserve price is not disclosed and remains confidential between the seller and the auctioneer.
Both the guide price and the reserve price can be subject to change up to and including the day of the auction.
A successful purchaser will also be required to pay a Buyer's Administration charge of £950+VAT (£1140 including VAT @ 20%) (unless stated otherwise within the property description in the catalogue) by cheque made payable to Countrywide.
